Frosty the Friendly Alchemist

Hack of Secret of Mana

Description:

This patch adds a small, friendly snowman to a range of wintry locations who will offer you a concoction to drink that will heal you and restore your MP. Though Frosty sometimes hides from the nearby monsters, so you might not always see him unless you clear the monsters first.

Locations:

  • Upper Land winter section.
  • The resort town in Ice Country, only after liberating Salamando.
  • The middle of the Ice Castle. This Frosty will allow you to save too.
  • Pure Land winter section.

Frosty is useful in these areas because they are generally fairly long and without many good places to rest. This hack also makes use of the not widely seen “pygmy snowman” graphic, which while not technically dummied out (it’s possible to see it in the original game under very specific circumstances) is almost never seen under normal circumstances.

Likewise, the snowman’s dialog is unused dialog that always existed in the game but had never been used before: “Drink this medicine! It’ll fix ya right up!”

The original Japanese version of the event indicates that it was supposed to be used in Tasnica in place of an Inn, but this was probably scrapped because it is fairly pointless to have an Inn in Tasnica; even a free one. Instead, this hack uses that story event in a more useful way.

Important things to note:

  • Known issue: When saving in the Ice Castle, the save file will say “Frosty Forest.”
  • How to combine this with the Variable Width Font hack: 1. Apply VWF, 2. Remove header, 3. Apply this hack, 4. Apply this hack’s VWF support hack.
  • How to combine this with Relocalized: 1. Apply Relocalized, 2. Apply this hack, 3. Apply this hack’s Relocalized support hack.
  • In order to make room for the snowmen, some non-unique NPCs were removed: a Moogle from the Upper Land, a Steamed Crab from the Upper Land, a Mushboom from Elinee’s Castle, a Specter from Ice Castle, and a Needlion from the Pure Land.
